Sonnet RX1600 overview

  • 1Description

The 64TB Fusion RX1600RAID Expansion System Hard Drive Array from Sonnet allows you to expand the storage capacity of your Fusion RX1600Fibre or Fusion RX1600RAID in a daisy chain, eliminating the need for an additional RAID controller card to expand your storage capacity. It connects directly to the main unit's mini-SAS expansion port. You can add up to 7 expansion units to a single Fusion RX1600RAID in a daisy chain fashion.

The expansion unit is housed in a 3U rackmount form factor for professional installation. Incorporating more storage capacity is nearly as simple as installing this additional Fusion RX1600 Expansion system into the rack and connecting a few cables. If you don't need access to all your files all the time, the Fusion storage systems user-swappable drive modules enable you to easily change the sets of drives.

Easy Expandability
When your job calls for access to more than 32TB of files, Sonnet offers an economical upgrade path that is simple to deploy -- Fusion RX1600RAID Expansion systems. Each RX1600RAID storage system features internal SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) expanders that enable you to connect additional RX1600RAID enclosures in a daisy chain, no additional RAID controller card needed. This simplifies installation and significantly reduces your cost to expand capacity. Of course, if your needs are simpler, each system includes user-swappable drive modules so you can easily change sets of drives as you go
Status Supervisor
The reliability of the Fusion RX1600RAID is further enhanced through SES (SCSI Enclosure Services) 2.0 compliance and enhanced S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting for each hard drive installed in the system. Built into the Fusion RX1600RAID enclosure, SES functionality provides enhanced real-time monitoring and reporting of drive, power supply, and temperature status, with real time results displayed in utility application screens and the illumination of conveniently placed LEDs on the enclosure. Warning alarms sound in case of a power supply or fan issue, too. S.M.A.R.T. data criteria can be used to notify you of an impending drive failure and enable you to minimize downtime as a result
Master Controller
The heart of a Fusion RX1600RAID storage system is the Sonnet PCI Express RAID controller. This powerhouse is based on the latest-generation Intel IOP348 RAID processor running at 1.2GHz, which can handle the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The Sonnet RAID controller is configured with 256MB of ECC-protected RAM, especially important to maintain data stream writes as the disk array nears capacity 1
Driving Force
Fusion storage systems employ Enterprise/RAID Edition hard drives that have been selected for their superior performance, error handling, and reliability characteristics, especially when used in RAID groups. These drives are subjected to hours of additional, stringent testing to check for soft errors, vibration, and other reliability predictors. Just the sturdiest drives pass these tests and are prepared with special RAID-optimized firmware to become the building blocks of a super-reliable Fusion storage system 2
Versatile Performance
These systems are ideal for use in mixed environments -- various operating systems, editing applications and output demands requiring the flexibility and interoperability that Fusion RX1600RAID storage systems provide. Fusion RX1600RAID systems support Mac OS X, Windows Vista, Windows, XP, and Linux. They are compatible with capture cards from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Matrox, and Bluefish444, and work with all mainstream video editing applications including Apple Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere Pro
